Fencing - I want to put a 6ft tall fence (preferably wooden) in my garden. Will need a gate too. How much?
would this cost? The area is approximately 10 metres then a gate at the side - this area is 1.5 metres.
I know absolutely nothing about fencing so any help would be very much appreciated.
Also is it better to get a proper fencing contractor or could I do this myself with the help of friends?
Question answered by ~*cathee*~
we put a 6 ft fence all the way from the end of the back garden right down to the end of the drive.if i recall rightly we paid around £350 - £400.
then we got a 6 ft gate to go across the drive and that cost around £400 .
you can get gates cheaper but you want it to look good don't ya.
my partner put them all in so it will cost more if you want someone to do this for ya.

Other than the mountains, (which are more expensive), anywhere in the Denver metro area would probably work well for you. Some people might say Boulder, and it is a nice town, but it's also more expensive.
When looking for a contractor to put up a fence, what questions should I ask?
I want to put up a wood, 6ft, privacy fence with a gate in the back and front. It must be flush to the ground to prevent my cats from getting out. I have a small yard and will need about 300 feet of fence. One contractor quoted something like $5000 including $1300 for labor. Is this right? What do I need to know when others come out for quotes?

Once you have decided to install a fence, you should be prepared to discuss the following points with you fence professional:
The purpose of the fence
The exact location of the fence
What type of design features you want (height, style, material)
Design completion date
How long will my fence last?
What kind of guarantees can I expect from my fence contractor?
The American Fence Association recommends that you discuss specific warranty concerns with your fence contractor prior to installation. The manufacturer usually provides material warranties. The contractor guarantees workmanship. The term of a warranty will vary from product to product. Be sure to read the fine print on all warranties
How do I select a good fence contractor?
The American Fence Association recommends that you do your homework before you select a fence contractor. It is acceptable to interview different contractors before you make a decision on whom to use. Some questions you should ask:
Does your company hold liability and workman's compensation insurance?
Can you supply me with a sample of your contract and products?
What type of guarantee and warranty comes with the fence?
Do you belong to your National or Local Trade Association?
Fence contractors that belong to AFA abide by a strict code of ethics governing quality workmanship and business practices (this does not, in any way, imply that non-members are not reputable companies).

My dad, Steve Hill's Home Improvement, has been a contractor for over 30 years. I've been working with him for practically half my life, and he brings the quality that I believe you as a homeowner is looking for. He's the most reliable and hardest working person I've ever come across - he gets the job done right. If I was financially ready for a house, he would be the person I would choose out of the entire state of Georgia. Hands down.
Give him a call, I promise you won't regret it.

Who do I contact about fence building regs?
I'd like to have a fence built around my small backyard, but the way my house is situated, the backyard kinda looks like it's in the front. Also, it's close to a corner, and I think there may be regs. concerning traffic (I want a 6ft fence). The contractors seem clueless. Who should I contact? I'm in Portland, Oregon.

Approximately: How much does it cost to erect a wooden fence?
My Mom has some shady, creepy, and weird neighbors. She would like to install a basic wooden privacy fence. The fence she has now goes the perimeter of the yard and is 4 feet high chain link. We can hire a handyman to do it, but what approximately does it cost? Are we talking hundreds or thousands? Do they install it over the chain link? Any info is appreciated!

Easy, sorry about the crappy neighbors. It is important that you get local estimates from local fence contractors, but don't come to rely on guesses found here on Yah, as a lot of factors really bear on the cost of such a project, including the local going rate of someone who actually knows what they are doing in you area compared to other areas.
Here's a link to a handyman site that offers free very resourceful information to assist you in your project, and, ultimately, select a local fencing contractor in an effort to get the best deal for you:
INFO on local fencing contractors:
I'm sure you'll find the information you need, specifically the tips, useful as it relates to being treated fairly by contractors and exploring the consumer-wise approach of getting free written estimates to find the best contractor in your area.
Please, know this: If you negotiate well with the contractor and he buys the materials (i.e., the fence you desire) for you, you may try to have him pass the discounted cost of the materials to you in exchange for giving him the installation job, as usually contractors get discounts (called "contractor's discounts" / "contractor's price") when buying from suppliers because of the many purchases they make as required by their jobs.
The Internet. Just whatever is available online and what I have on my mind, including the inclusion of relevant sites, like the one cited above that came about from my creative efforts.
